    Caught in a dilemma, small as it may be. I think I've convinced myself to use a stain called gunstock(Minwax) on the stock. Rich brown color. My local gun dealer has a grind-to-fit black recoil pad in stock. But I'm leaning toward brown, but I'm undecided. SOOOO, what do y'all think. Black-Brown-or don't matter. I value all of the input, it's like writers block. Here are a couple of examples, Hogue makes both black and brown.

    Thanks

    PS, I know this ain't important political stuff or earth shattering, but what the heck, It is a gun forum.

    Go with the brown. :)













    No, the black. :)










    Wait! :eek: No, I was right the first time, go with the brown...:)......
    ..... but the black one would....
    ........ no, no, no, just go ahead with the brown. Brown is just fine. Yeah brown, that's the color..... 'cause I mean black, well that's.... not a bad choice either. Screw it. Install a black one. That'd be nice, real nice. Almost as nice as the brown. :p :D :D :D

    I like the "classic" black to contrast with the stock. Like the "little black dress" . Nobody ever bought the "little brown dress" :D

    I photoshopped your two options together hoping it would help you in your decision making process.

    Sorry for the quick/rough outline job

    Good luck bro...

    I think that I would go with the black, I personally like the looks of it.
